them more troubled. president obama and this cabinet stood by her. >> mrs. rice is extraordinary. i couldn't be prouder of the job that she has done. [ applause ] >> and joining me now from the white house, nbc news correspondent viqueira. vic, will the gop continue its pile-on of the ambassador? will it have the opposite effect of hardening the president and daring him essentially to select her for secretary of state perhaps? >> well, you know, it's hard to say exactly what is going through the president's mind at this point. a lot of people think that he is really under the gun to make an appointment, but hillary clinton is still the secretary of state. he may have some time yet. perhaps even as much as a month or up to the inauguration on january 20th. so there is that. second of all, susan rice made that pilgrimage, if you will, up to the senate after all the criticism that she got from john mccain and lindsey graham and other key republican senators after her appearance on the sunday shows talking about the incident in benghazi. they were so angry because they say she dissemina
her commitment to helping everyone. we hadn't passed a passenger rail re-authorization in 11 years. i was the ranking member and joyce worked with myself, mr. oberstar, and we had great cooperation from both sides of the aisle. we passed the legislation called priia, passenger rail investment. authorization for passenger rail, which is right now the guideline we go by and the authorization. if it wasn't for her dedication, commitment, and incredible knowledge. i just think of the knowledge that will be lost when she leaves her position, we couldn't have achieved that. so, joyce, on behalf of the majority side, which we have had the privilege to have you working with us, and again from mr. cummings and the minority side, we are just eternally grateful. and we are paying a little special tribute to you today. and thank you again for your service. god bless you. >> i thank you for scheduling today's hearing. following the release in 2005 by the g.a.o. of a report entitled "amtrak management systemic problems require actions to improve efficiency effectiveness, accountability" that was th

in san francisco. >> president chiu: supervisor campos. >> supervisor campos: thank you, mr. president. i'll trying not to repeat what has been said. this is definitely a long time coming, and i want to thank supervisor olague for -- and her office for all the work that has gone into this piece of legislation. i think it's appropriate that ultimately this is somethingo[j that she was the main author of, and i think it's going to be a tool that's going to be useful for many, many years to come. i want to thank supervisor kim and her staff for their work as well in pushing this item sheila, who in many respects this kind of started with the study review that we had passed the budget and legislative analyst to conduct of our affordable housing strategies. so i want to because this is one of their recommendations that came out of that study. and i think that the discussion by all the colleagues made this better, and you know this is the kind of tool that we probably may need to tweak as we move especially after the passage of prop c, makes this really important. so thank youí$

there, mr. jindal. republicans never get credit. nicky haley, she is a republican female governor and yet you don't see her on the front pages. instead, what you're talking about is this nonstory about whether or not house republicans have women in leadership positions. but you never mention all of the minorities of women who are leading this party forward. at the republican convention, just this last summer, you saw such a diverse roster taking that stage. but what are we talking about today? white males. >> well, that happens to be the topic today. i can't say we never address that. we've talked a lot about nicky haley and others on this program. but we've also talked a lot about abortion in the past and how some controversial comments about it cost a couple republican hopefuls. amy is there room in the party for a pro-choice candidate. and could they actually win? >> indeed, i think there is room for a pro-choice candidate when mayor giuliani, he's pro-choice, he's a republican, he won here in new york city as a republican and he was a frontrunner back in 2008, if you remember.

wear them with enormous pride. i'm absolutely sure. these two, actually, made her swell with pride even more. have you thought at all about the date, 1902, why that would be so special? it's the coronation of edward vii. - that's right. - certainly this dear mrs. martin, the nanny, would have shared in the great drama that surrounded the coronation of edward vii. and so i believe the people who went to that coronation would have been given a medal such as this. more intimate friends would have been given a brooch where the date 1902 is laid out very precisely on the lid. but i think if we're gonna get a measure of exactly how intimate this relationship is-- and it very clearly is-- we need to look at these stunning telegrams. it says "handed in at sandringham: mrs. martin at sir john knollys' stable yard, st. james' palace," and it says-- and i think this is full of drama, i really do-- "poor dear baba and tiny mama miss nana very much. hope she is well and not too sad." signed "princess of wales." would that be the sadness of queen alexandra's death? what's the date of that? 25. -
-deserved her raw. certainly he would have gotten a kick out of being flanked by buildings named after hubert humphrey and gerald ford, also leaders from opposite ends of the political spectrum. to actually considered mr. humphrey one of his heroes and he had one of humphrey's quote put on the wall in his office. has for gerald ford, they didn't agree on much of anything, but to it counted president ford as a true friend and since friends are always honest with one another, when the new president explained what legislation he wanted to pass, tip would say that is not going anywhere but if you want to do that, that was tipped. who of course would also be pleased to see as telling an old story or two. now he will stand in good company and ever the representative, provide folks back home with yet another source of pride. having said all that, tip might have one small complained about today's the occasion. of small part of the relationship, nothing but a close vote, give him a chance to do just the last bit of a little more wrangling as he tries to secure the votes. today when the roll is
